Moore, Randy
American Biology Teacher, v61 n2 p92-101 Feb 1999
Describes the background and outcome of the McLean v. Arkansas Board of Education case heard in federal court in the early 1980s. The decision repealed a legislative act which called for "equal time" in science classrooms for presenting evolution and creationism. The decision also established that "creation science" had no scientific merit or educational value as science. Contains 60 references. (WRM)
